S. Couvreur S.J. (Séraphin Couvreur)
Imprimerie de la Mission Catholique, Ho Kien Fou (Hejian), 1896. Text in French, Latin and Chinese. Original quarter percaline binding with gilt titles on spine. Spine slightly rubbed. Tender joints between pages XXIX to 10. Title in Chinese characters "Shijing" at head of title page. A few foxing. Otherwise in very good condition. "Cheu King. Chinese text with a double translation in French and Latin. An introduction and a vocabulary", a rare wonderful classical work translated by Father Jesuit Séraphin Couvreur and published in Ho Kien Fou, under the Presses de la Mission Catholique, in 1896. Cheu King, the Classic of Poetry, also Shijing or Shih-ching, translated variously as "Book of Songs", "Book of Odes" or simply known as the "Odes" or "Poetry", is the oldest existing collection of Chinese poetry, comprising 305 works dating from the 11th to 7th centuries BC. It is one of the "Five Classics" traditionally said to have been compiled by Confucius, and has been studied and memorized by scholars in China and neighboring countries over two millennia. It is also a rich source of "chengyu" (four-character classical idioms) that are still a part of learned discourse and even everyday language in modern Chinese. Since the Qing dynasty, its rhyme patterns have also been analysed in the study of Old Chinese phonology. Séraphin Couvreur (Chinese: Gu Saifen, 14 January 1835 - 19 November 1919) was a French Jesuit missionary to China, sinologist, and creator of the EFEO Chinese transcription.

JAMES, Henry (1843-1916)
London: William Heinemann, 1896. SIGNED FIRST EDITION. Two Volumes. Octavo. Publisher's light blue cloth. Light edgewear and scuffing, bumping to spine and some very light rubbing to extremities. Some darkening to the spine but essentially clean, strong and tight. Shows extremely well. Internally clean and fresh, front inner hinge cracked to gutter. Ink ownership to front pastedowns of both volumes. A very handsome set, printed in a run of only 600 copies, scarce by any account and especially so in this condition. Even more interesting is the fact that this copy is inscribed by James to the half title of volume 1 to a 'Mrs. Hill' in the year of publication. Jane Dalzell Hill (nee Finlay) was the daughter of the owner of the Northern Whig newspaper and the wife of the editor, Frank Harrison Hill, of the London Daily News. A journalist and prolific correspondent of such arts luminaries as Henry Irving, Mrs Hill was a literary critic for the Daily News and The Saturday Review. She made the acquaintance of Henry James in 1877 having just composed a review of his 'Daisy Miller', saving her most severe approbation for 'An International Episode'. Interestingly James wrote a long and detailed letter to Mrs. Hill defending his creation and responding to various points presented in her review. This letter (found in Henry James: A Life in Letters) is the only known example of James responding to a critic. James and Mrs. Hill continued to correspond and indeed became friends. A few other examples of James' work inscribed to Mrs. Hill exist amongst the darkened stacks of the rare book … [Click Below for Full Description]

Kokoschka, Oskar, Maler und Graphiker (1886-1980).
An den emigrierten Kunsthistoriker und Gründer des Phaidon-Verlages Ludwig Goldscheider (1896-1973) in London: "[...] Lieber Freund Wir hatten Riesenfreude über Ihre Karte und daß Sie zu uns kommen. Bitte ja! Bis zum 16. Oktober sind wir Zuhause, Telefon steht am Briefkopf, genügt einen Tag zuvor telefonieren damit wir Ihnen ein Hotel besorgen. Möchte Sie so gerne sehen! Aber, bitte, auf keinen Fall im Burgtheater meine magische Inscenierung von Raimund's 'Moisasurs Zauberfluch' anzuschauen, die fast jeden Tag gespielt wird. Die Wiener sind auf dem Kopf gestanden, man hatte mir, vielleicht mit Absicht! eine schier unlösbare Aufgabe da gestellt, wegen der vielen Verwandlungen ist das Stück nie aufgeführt worden. Ich bin furchtbar neugierig was Sie dazu sagen werden!!! Kommen Sie aber wirklich her nicht wieder vorbeifahren, nun scheint die Sonne wieder nach acht Tagen unaufhörlichem Regen und ich habe noch ein Portrait hier stehen, das ich gleich nach Salzburg machen müsste weil der Mann bloß drei Wochen hier sein konnte. Ihre Tochter war wieder nicht bei mir in Salzburg, wahrscheinlich muß ich den Kurs aufgeben weil es, gerade zu der Zeit, von Anfang bis zum Ende, Tag und Nacht, gießt! Es geht einfach nicht. Nun, Burgtheater und Wiedersehen hier in Villeneuve Mit Liebe und Dankbarkeit für Ihr Zumirhalten [...]" - Goldscheider veröffentlichte 1963 im eigenen Verlag eine Kokoschka-Monographie, die mehrere Auflagen und Übersetzungen (1966 deutsch) erlebte.

London: 1896. Bull, Henrik J. The Cruise of the "Antarctic" to the South Polar Regions. Edward Arnold, 1896. First edition. 8vo. pp. [xii], 243, 4 (ads.), 32 (ads.); 12 illustrations; a near-fine copy in the original pictorial cloth, gilt, bumped to corners. Provenance: With the 1901 ownership inscription of William Colbeck, captain of the Morning, the relief ship to Scott's Discovery expedition 1901-4. Bull's account of the Norwegian Antarctic expedition of 1894 -5, sent out by Svend Foyn to investigate the region's whaling possibilities, includes a description of the first recorded landing on the Continent at Cape Adare. Bull was one of four to do so, the others being Captian Kristensen, Borchgrevink and Captain Jensen. This copy was once in the library of William Colbeck, who was in the Antarctic on the Morning, the relief ship to Scott's Discovery expedition; we have not been able to determine whether this book formed part of the Morning's library.

New Mexico: New Mexican Printing Company, 1896. The Johnson Impeachment Signed By Author. Shipped with USPS Media Mail. The last 2 pages have been torn or cut out of the book and the cover is soiled and stained but the pages are clean and the signature page is in great shape. Edmund Ross was the deciding vote in the Johnson impeachment trial. Johnson was acquitted because of Ross's surprise vote. Many feel that the Johnson backers paid off Ross to vote in Johnson's favor. Edmund G. Ross is one of eight U.S. Senators featured in Profiles in Courage, the 1956 Pulitzer Prize-winning history co-written by then-Senator John F. Kennedy and Theodore Sorensen in commemoration of past acts of political courage in Congress. [Attributes: First Edition]

Jane Austen
FIRST EDITION, published by Macmillan 1896. Illustrations by Hugh Thomson. Overall in very good condition. Binding. The binding is firm and tight. The front and back boards are very good with only very slight wear to the corners and edges. The inner and outer hinges are very good. The spine is sun faded with small nicks at the top/bottom. Internally. The Art Nouveau decorative front board and end papers, designed by the foremost designed A. Turbayne, are in excellent condition. The text block is solid and all page edges are gilded. The Frontispiece tissue guard is foxed and this has rubbed off on the edges of the Frontispiece itself and the title page (photo). There is no further foxing on the next page (photo of Introduction page) nor thereafter. All pages are clean and bright and I can see no marks, tears, writing etc. There is a neat owner's inscription on the front prelim, 'Mary Aston, Christmas 1896' as further validation. All Thomson's illustrations are in good condition. The slight weaknesses are the rather faded spine and the initial foxing caused by the tissue paper not being acid-free. These apart, there are many strengths and overall this is a splendid example of Jane Austen's classic work. I will be pleased to answer any queries and the book will be well packaged for emigration.

BEERBOHM, Max.
1896. Partly effaced inscription lower left. Mounted, framed and glazed. Pencil and watercolor drawing (320 x 180 mm). Original pencil and watercolour caricature by Beerbohm, signed "Max" at center and titled "Mr George Moore" lower right. Hart-Davis 1044. 1896 was a banner year for artist, author, and aesthete Max Beerbohm. His boldly titled book The Works of Max Beerbohm was published (opening with his influential essay "Dandies and Dandies"), and his first public exhibition was held at the Fine Arts Society. This drawing, Beerbohm's first caricature of the Irish writer George Moore (1852-1933), was displayed in the show and was also reproduced in Twenty-Five Gentlemen. As Margaret Stetz writes in Facing the Late Victorians, "Beerbohm believed fervently in the value of self-contradiction and of holding fast to principles that were seemingly incompatible and irreconciliable, a philosophy which he brought to the art of caricature. To admire someone meant that one must also seek out and ridicule the unlovely sides of one's object of admiration." Beerbohm returned regularly to caricature George Moore over the succeeding decades, just as he did with Oscar Wilde, Henry James, and others, chief among them, of course, himself. This drawing was inscribed to artist Charles Shannon (1863–1937), painter and lithographer, and lifelong friend of Charles Ricketts. "Ricketts was the dominant figure in the artistic and literary circle which formed around them in Chelsea (1888–98) and then more privately at Richmond (1898–1902)" (ODNB). Beerbohm knew them and produced joint portraits of th … [Click Below for Full Description]

Ruding, Walt
London: Elkin Mathews, 1896. First Edition. Hardcover. 8vo. x, 100pp., 20pp list of books in Belles Lettres by publisher Charles Elkin Mathews. Dark blue cloth hardcover with embossed bronze title and drawn spider web on front cover. Cloth binding has some light spotting, light shelf wear, and some wrinkles to cloth joints. Untrimmed page edges. This copy has 2 frontispieces separated by a tissue guard. The first illustration in the book by Aubrey Beardsley is often considered a "self portrait" and is the illustration cited in the description as first edition, second issue. The second illustration by Beardsley is the scarce "Black Coffee" illustration of two ladies at a counter with a cup of coffee in front. The original first edition, first issue of this book had the extremely limited "Black Coffee" illustration. The glossy Black Coffee illustration was produced by the "Swan Electric Engraving Company." Laurence Worms blog "Bookhunter on Safari" March 21st, 2013 writes according to Mark Lasner's Beardsley bibliography (item 94), "Lasner cites other authorities suggesting that just six copies (rather than twelve) were bound up with the earlier frontispiece, describes a genuinely later issue containing both frontispieces, and fills in the rest of the detail." Very good. Item #4659. [Attributes: First Edition]

Le Roux, Hugues (1860-1925) ; (Edith Cornell Smith, Translator)
[Likely New York. After 1896]. [526]ff., i.e. [526]pp. Unbound manuscript. 81⁄2 x 7 x 31⁄2 inches. Includes a 2pp. manuscript commentary of the translation. Toning; staining and soiling; some losses to first and final leaves; very good. Archival box. Hughes Robert Charles Henri Le Roux (1860-1925) was a French writer of travel literature and French colonies, a journalist, and an intimate of official French circles. How did he come to mingle with Gertrude Stein and other American expatriates in 1914 in the Paris Left Bank? A clue may be in the survival of this manuscript. Le Roux came to America from France in February 1902 to deliver a series of eight lectures on "The French Novel and French Society" to the Cercle Français at Harvard University. He delivered almost 100 other lectures throughout the United States including other Ivy League schools. In France, Le Roux knew the novelist Gustave Flaubert, a family friend. He was novelist Alphonse Daudet's secretary. Le Roux's Oh My Past...Memoirs of a Child, is an English-language translation of O Mon Passé, his memoir of his childhood in Normandy, first published in Paris in 1896. Its translator, Edith Cornell Smith, was married to a Harvard graduate. She may have become aware of Le Roux through his public lectures, subsequently his writings, and then decided then to translate his memoir. Other reasons, based upon social class and circles may have been at work. Edith Cornell Smith (1850-1932) was the daughter of George J. Cornell. In 1886, she married Sandford Sidney Smith. Mr. Smith was a Harvard graduate and a … [Click Below for Full Description]

Edgar Allen Poe
ont> George Routledge : London, 1896 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A very bright and smart complete six volume set of Edgar Allan Poe's writings. A beautiful set, being the 'Fordham' edition. Illustrated, with a frontispiece to each volume. Volume I has an additional six folding facsimile plates. Volumes II and IV both have an additional plate. Therefore, eight plates across all volumes and six folding facsimiles. A very bright six volume set of this 'Fordham' edition. The Fordham edition was produced to lighten Poe's dark, mysterious image with the reading public. It was first issued in 1884. This is the second issue, published in 1896 which enhances the appearance of the books, with the gilt decorative scrolling to the spines. This second issue is the first to include the essays and memoirs by Richard Henry Stoddard. Richard Henry Stoddard was an American critic and poet. He was a major figure in New York, and is arguable one of the most knowledgeable experts on Edgar Allan Poe. A very smart collection of this American writer's work. Scarce to have so many volumes together and in such a lovely condition. Condition: In the publisher's original full cloth binding. Externally, very smart with just some minor bumping to the head and tail of spines. Remnants of a bookseller's label to the front pastedown of all volumes. Prior owner's inscription to the recto of front endpaper to volume II-VI , 'J Walters 1913'. Internally, all volumes are firmly bound. Pages are very bright.

With frontispiece portrait of Burns and 14 photographic portraits of the translators.Spine evenly sunned to dark green, plates a touch browned just at edges, occasional light offsetting, other trivial imperfections, but a nearly fine copy, the binding very attractive and the contents quite clean and fresh.This critical edition of Burns' poetry as rendered in 18 different languages is a wonderful example of works published and bound by the Glasgow firm of James MacLehose (1811-85), who began his career in 1838 as a bookseller, at first in partnership, and then on his own. In 1862 he added a bindery to the enterprise, and in 1881 he brought into the business his two sons, who continued it after his death.

LINDSAY, Lady
Longmans, Green and Co., 1896. 1st Edition. 8vo. pp. viii, 187. Fine contemporary painted leather binding by the Giuseppe Norsa Company of Venice with their ticket and tiny embossed lead seal. A typically Islamic design, the binding uses leather beaten over a wooden[?] ornate design painted overall in gold with floral decorations in black, red and blue, red silk endpapers. Originally with leather ties, two are lost and two are detached. Sunk panel bindings were known in Venice from Renaissance times and used to preserve official documents, this is an intriguing binding, possibly a copy of an earlier example, which completely disguises the leather under the painted decoration, presumably aimed at the tourist trade at the turn of the century.

Première édition.L'exemplaire offert à Marcel Proust.Envoi autographe signé : « à Marcel ; Hommage respectueux. R.H. [18]96 », sur la couverture. Duo pour deux voix de femmes en choeur ou soli. La rencontre de Reynaldo Hahn avec Marcel Proust date de 1894, et déclenché un épisode passionné de deux ans environ, puis en une magnifique amitié qui ne prendra fin qu'avec la mort de l'écrivain, en 1922. Les Bretonnes sont préparée pour leur parution à la fin de l'année 1895, au plus fort de la relation entre les deux hommes qui voyagent ensemble, du 4 septembre au 27 octobre, sur les côtes bretonnes. D'abord à Belle-Ile-en-Mer, puis à Beg-Meil dans le Finistère, où ils logent à l'hôtel Fermont et rencontrent le peintre américain Alexander Harrison, l'un des premiers modèles d'Elstir. C'est pendant que Proust lit Splendeurs et misères des courtisanes et commence à écrire Jean Santeuil, dans lequel il dresse un portrait fidèle de Reynaldo Hahn : ce dernier, quant à lui, compose un trio et Là-bas, choeur breton, qui reprennent les choeurs profanes des Bretonnes, composées en 1892 - une commande, exécutée chez les commanditaires le 27 février 1892. Ce choeur n'avait jamais été repris depuis et encore moins publié, ce que Hahn voulait absolument rectifier. L'année 1896 est l'un des plus prolixes, avec onze lettres de Proust à Hahn.
